I reviewed these some time ago and for some reason the review never went through. These are fabulous mince cutlets. A bit different from the usual ones we make, but very good. I ended up needing quite a bit more potato, but other than that everything was perfect. They are absolutely delicious, and are even really nice looking! To suit our tastes, I did add a larger quantity of spices, but as stated they would be just as good :) Thank you very much for this recipe!!!
